Fluteworthy - Repertoire for the beginner flautist (Book 1)
Edited and compiled by Lamorna Nightingale
Accompaniments by Sally Whitwell and Chris Williams
Duet parts and piano accompaniments included.
Following on from Lamorna’s Beginner Flute Book, this stylistically diverse collection of over 90 flute solos, folk songs and duets are suitable for the AMEB grade 1 - 2 student.
Also available for free download are parts for other common instruments including guitar, saxophone and clarinet. Enjoy playing them with your friends!
The carefully selected pieces reinforce basic rhythmic knowledge and introduce more complex concepts such as simple syncopation and and semiquavers in logical and intuitive steps.
Suggestions for creative music making are included to introduce simple improvisation, creative structural innovation, and encourage the exploration of diverse ensemble combinations.
Alongside traditional repertoire, an engaging set of folk songs from around the world (Africa, China, Taiwan, Japan, Italy, Hawaii, America, Israel and Australia) with original accompaniments by Sally Whitwell, provide diversity and spontaneity to the collection. Many of these tunes can be accompanied by other instruments (guitar, ukelele, percussion and other common instruments), for which parts will be available online soon. Repertoire for the Beginner Flautist concludes with a collection of festive duets including Christmas Carols, Hanuka Songs and the Australian National Anthem!
“This lovely new collection encourages the development of flexible lips and lyrical playing from the earliest days. The flute parts work expressively as stand alone parts or with the addition of the attractive piano accompaniments. A much needed addition to the repertoire for the beginner flute.”
